Millennian thermal tradition
Terme Euganee: a place of rebirth…
Health, wellbeing and pleasure.
The long history of the Abano, Montegrotto, Galzignano, Battaglia and Teolo Spas melds with that of the Euganean People and with the ancient cult of Aponus, god of the thermal waters and their healing virtues.
Today, as two thousand years ago, these sites of wellbeing, steeped in the regenerating greenery of the Euganean Hills, are the ideal site for health and relaxation. There are 240 thermal baths where you can relax swathed in the warmth of the constant 37° C waters.
Each hotel has specialized treatment sections and modern, functional facilities equipped with every comfort.
The largest spa in the field.
The Euganean Spas are the largest thermal baths specialized in fango-balneotherapy in all of Europe. The meteoric waters, loaded with geothermal energy, spring forth at a constant temperature of 87°C and are unique in the world. All establishments in the Euganean Spa region hold “I Super” classification from the Italian Ministry of Health, indicating that they safeguard the natural resources of the area and apply strict discipline in using the waters, steadfastly preserving this natural gift that arises from the ground at Abano, Montegrotto, Galzignano, Battaglia and Teolo.
All this thanks to the ongoing commitment of the Centro Studi Termali Veneto “Pietro d’Abano” (Spa Study Center), which, through the study of water, algae, and muds, performs scientific research and monitors the effects of fangotherapy in order to guarantee the utmost quality.
Centro Studi’s primary research focuses on three scientific areas: clinical, biological and chemical-physical. Working in synergy with the most prestigious universities and research centers, Centro Studi, over the years, has ensured the scientific and therapeutic validity of the thermal treatments, now internationally recognized as a medical product.

Villas, castles and medieval towns. Walking through the past.
Castles, walled cities, moats: the Euganean Hills offer a landscape still permeated by the mystery and charm of ladies, lords and knights of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Places like
Montagnana with the extraordinary unfolding of the Carraresi walls: a curtain of over 2000 meters,
17 meters high, broken up by 24 hexagonal towers. Or the Cini Castle in Monselice which is now a Medieval museum. The Euganean from which to admire the Venetian Villas. Here architects like Andrea Palladio, Gian Maria Falconetto and Andrea della Valle designed the retreats of the most powerful Venetian families of their times: Villa Emo Capodilista La Montecchia, Villa Selvatico, Villa Mocenigo Mainardi, Villa Barbarigo, Villa dei Vescovi and the Catajo Castle, true and proper architectural gems with imposing facades and enchanting gardens.
It is impossible not to fall in love with the timeless charm of the Euganean Hills: centuries-old oaks and chestnut woods alternate with Mediterranean vegetation, terraced hillsides covered with vineyards and orchards. The Regional Park offers 19 thousand hectares of volcanic hills that you can explore by car, on foot or by bicycle choosing from the various scenic routes and more than 20 paths that climb the slopes. Ancient towns, hermitages and refined architecture tell the story of centuries of history, art and tradition. The tranquility of the Euganean Hills and the magic of the vistas have offered inspiration and refuge to such poets as Petrarch, Foscolo, Byron and Shelley.
Land of history, art and culture. Just a short distance from the art cities.
The Euganean Spas enjoy a unique, privileged position, a crossroads between some of the most beautiful cities in Northern Italy. Venice, a unique city, magically suspended on the water is shrouded in charm, mystery while art abounds in its museums and countless cultural initiatives.
Verona, the symbol of love, the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, reveals the signs of Roman grandeur in the Arena which hosts one of the most prestigious international opera festivals. Padua, “the city of the Saint” with its XIV century Basilica of St. Anthony, boasts a medieval historic center with a wealth of piazzas including the XVIII century Prato della Valle and the superb Scrovegni Chapel that houses noteworthy frescoes by Giotto. Vicenza, at the foot of the magnificent Berici Hills, joins grandiose Palladian architecture with Gothic grace.
Ferrara, the Renaissance art center forever linked to the languid drifting of the Po river and the patronage of the Este family presents the refined Palazzo dei Diamanti and imposing Estense Castle. And finally, there is Mantua, an accommodating gem of a city, seat of the historic Gonzaga family.
The taste of tradition. Typical flavors.
The pleasure of the table is an ancient tradition in the Euganean Hills: the fertile land produces a wealth of genuine, natural products ranging
from peas to asparagus, from the renowned red chicory to mushrooms and then there are the peaches, apples, cherries, Galzignano strawberries and sweet
potatoes. It is impossible to resist the typical Euganean produce such as the olive oil which has been
famous since the 1300s, its honey, the “Montagnana Prosciutto” ham and the typical dishes such as the risottos, “risi e bisi” rice and pea soup. And we must not forget the meat dishes such as “fruited duck”, pigeon, Paduan hen, guinea fowl. And all obviously accompanied by polenta.
The land of wines…
Vineyards softly drape the hillsides all the way to the edges of the woods: in the Euganean Hills producing wine has always been an art, facilitated by the favorable morphology of the vineyards and the climate.
Today, the production of the prestigious Colli Euganei wines has been institutionalized by the Consortium for the safeguard of Denomination of Controlled Origin. The Consortium focuses on protecting the “Colli Euganei” Denomination of Controlled Origin (D.O.C.), guaranteeing the origin, tradition and quality of the vineyards throughout the territory. Following the “Strada del vino” (wine trail) you can visit these vineyards.
